TransAlp XL700V soft luggage
« on: February 24, 2016, 09:21:58 am »
I'm looking for soft luggage for my TA 700 (2008). I've got Kaoko day bag on the back. I'm thinking of getting Kaoko's saddle bag as well...
Anyone fitted these on a TA?

Any other suggestions?

I have fitted something similar.. you will need to fit pannier brackets to accommodate soft luggage as once you fill them they tend to droop as they age., I used the SW Motech ones.. they are really sturdy and double up as crash bars and easy to remove if so desired. it does require you to move the rear indicators if I remember correctly but brackets are provided and its fairly simple to do.

R3200 is a chunk of change.. that being said they look really nice, do you have any close up shots of it, maybe with one open?

I currently have the Kappa ones on my bike, I fitted them to my 650 and now the 700 and they have honestly lasted a really long time. So needless to say Im a Kappa fan.
